We had some cocktails and this really fun bar / restaurant and meet one of the owners who also is a musician there. The staff and patrons were very nice and friendly.

“we loved it so much!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Dinner at the Caravane Café was one of the highlights of our Moroccan trip - we were seated in the courtyard, we were looked after impeccably and had a thoroughly fantastic evening. The food was divine and the entertainment was simply wonderful.....a magician, 2 amazing live bands and very attentive staff and owner. The atmosphere was unforgettable - HIGHLY recommended!

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Having already had two really good dinners in Essaouira, this one surpassed all my expectations. It's set in an old riad with a beautiful courtyard and has been decorated with exotic colours, paintings and objects. You can dine in the courtyard or upstairs in one of the smaller rooms which feels very intimate (there was only one other table in our room). The food was nothing short of brilliant - we had Creole codfish cakes which were delicious, and then a fish dish which was both delicious and beautifully presented. There were musicians playing in the courtyard for someof the time which created a great atmosphere. Highly recommended!

“Eclectic Menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

One year later I remember Caravane as an oasis among all the construction in Essouara. We ate at a pinic table style fish joint the previous day that had excellent varieties of grilled fish. But very local and very messy. Piles of discarded fish caucuses, shells, and napkins after eating.
Caravane is a rabbit warren of interestingly decorated and lit rooms. Lots of plants.
The price was reasonable. The menu a fusion of Europe and Morocco. Service good. Solo guitar a pleasant addition.
